ALERT! On Tuesday, February 17, 2009, Watchmen took over ARTISTdirect.com.
ARTISTdirect.com has launched a custom coverage page for the most anticipated film of the year, Zack Snyder's big screen adaptation of legendary graphic novel Watchmen. Snyder brings Watchmen to life vividly, fully realizing Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' brilliant and apocalyptic vision of 1985.
The movie follows the titular Watchmen, a group of conflicted and complex superheroes suddenly dealing with the death of an old friend and a whole mire of intrigue with cosmic and political implications. It's a dark, strange, and utterly engrossing universe. Partnering with Warner Bros. for this exclusive page, ARTISTdirect.com has your key to entering this world.
The exclusive custom page will feature interviews with the cast and crew, video spots, news, and movie stills. In addition, the page also showcases an exclusive interview with alt-rock luminaries My Chemical Romance. The interview delves into the band's fascination with Watchmen and their deep involvement with the soundtrack, on which they re-recorded Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row" at Snyder's request. The page has the Snyder-helmed official video for My Chemical Romance's take on "Desolation Row" for your viewing pleasure.
Further integrating the realms of film and music, the page has a feature with prominent musicians discussing their love of the comic and anticipation for the film. Featured artists include Slipknot and Stone Sour mouthpiece Corey Taylor, System of a Down, and Scars on Broadway drummer John Dolmayan, My Chem's axeman Frank Iero, indie rapper Tech N9ne, R&B crooner Bobby Valentino, songstress Miranda Lee Richards, and many more.
